Library Journal, 2/15/12 "Terry's follow-up to his excellent Vegan Soul Kitchen lays bare the many inspirations behind his creative vegan cuisine.

VegNews, April 2012"Flipping through The Inspired Vegan is more like sitting on a barstool next to Terry while he works away at the kitchen counter. The sheer amount of information included in the book is impressive on its own-each recipe comes complete with a soundtrack and recommended book or film...This book could be a course for college credit, and should be. Oh, and it happens to have stop-in-your-tracks recipes...Terry's passion of for justice comes through just as clearly as his enjoyment of open, delicious food and the combination works wonderfully. This is a book you'll want to spend time with, put down, pick up, splatter sauce on, plan parties from, and share with everyone you know."
